Subscription Box Review: OwlCrate

Posted on 02/23/2016 in Discussion / 1 Comment

OwlCrate very well may be my all-time favorite subscription box. Even though I wasn’t crazy about the book I received in the last box, all the extra surprises are just so darn cool (and perfect for total book nerds like me!).  In case you aren’t familiar with it, OwlCrate is a monthly subscription box that contains a YA book, along with 3-5 other goodies that go along with that particular month’s theme. February’s theme was Sci-Fi Love, so I knew it was going to be right up my alley.  I love the little post cards that designed for each box. The back of the card details everything you will find inside. image3   As soon as I removed the paper, I knew this box was going to be amazing… image2   The first item: a tote bag designed by the team at Owl Crate to celebrate the end of The Lunar Chronicles! I was particularly excited by this because I just started reading Cinder, and I love it. I’m completely hooked and can’t wait to devour the rest of the series. image7   Next up: a wooden Tardis brooch, handmade by Vector Engraving. I’m not a Dr. Who fan (only because I’ve never watched!), but I have several friends who are, so I know it’ll end up with someone who will absolutely love it. image4   There were two books in this month’s box. The first was a sci-fi classic, The Time Machine by H.G. Wells. This edition is from Rock Paper Books, and has a really pretty cover: image5   And the featured book for February is The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry. It is a debut novel “all about traveling through time, summer nights, and first loves”. It also included a signed bookplate and a letter from the author. I cannot wait to read this! Fun cover, intriguing premise (you guys know I love time travel books!), and the letter was the icing on the cake. image6   I am really, really happy with the February OwlCrate. Though the price is a little steep (around $36), I think it’s totally worth it for all of the exclusive items that I received. Total win, OwlCrate! image1

Jessica’s addiction to books began at age 4, going on weekly trips to the library with her mom. After being a young fan of Sweet Valley High and The Baby-Sitters Club, she discovered the thrill of reading a book that made her want to leave the light on and check under the bed. Her all-time favorite author is Stephen King, but she will read just about anything! Jessica never leaves home without her e-reader, and considers it the best gift she ever received. Her other hobbies include running and going to Disney World as often as possible.
